I have always used Chisholms for kilt hire,and have always had an excellent shopping experience. Staff always polite and very helpful, they stock a good range of tartans and they are priced as reasonably as any other kilt hire in the town.

Chisholm's came highly recommended, so I stopped in here to order a new kilt. The service was quick and professional, the staff was quite knowledgeable, and I'm eagerly awaiting the shipment of my kilt. If you want to wear highland dress, do NOT buy one of those £75 packages they sell on the high street in Edinburgh. Seek out a... More

Required alterations to a kilt at very short notice and very pleased with the service. Staff are attentive and knowledgeable, disappointed I didn't get to see Heather on second visit as she is a hoot!

We were in town for a wedding & my mate rented a kilt long distance...from the US online. We were a little worried so checked in early. They had everything boxed up and proceeded to show us exactly how to put on the entire outfit, including a lesson in shoelace tying! A most accommodating place and easy to find.

My Brothers and I went to hire Kilts for a Ceilidh. I was last minute due to us both working away from Inverness at the moment. The staff worked hard to find and fit us with our preferred tartan and jacket arrangement. When we picked up out order later that day everything was provided neatly in a hard case so... More

We did our kilt hires through Chisholms and the service was excellent. We had many communications from abroad via email and the response was always prompt. Hamish had a special challenge with one of the fittings because of Abram's height, 6'5", but supplied all the components that not only fit to a "T" but were of the highest quality and... More

With a family wedding in the Highlands in August, I needed a kilt. However, I live in Northern Ireland. The whole thing was organised over the web and via phone calls with Hamish in the shop. For those who know a badly fitted kilt is not good and with some trepidation I arrived at the shop the day before said... More

While on our honeymoon, my wife and I stopped in here (at the suggestion of some locals) to order a Kilt. The staff (Hamish and Mr. Chisolm) were very friendly and knowledgable. They asked essential questions to help me pick an appropriate tartan, kilt weight, etc. Hamish took my measurements, and then actually called me to come back in just... More

I had visited Chisholms before on a trip to Scotland and was happy to see that they still had the same high standards and service. I was in the Highlands for a wedding and they were able to accommodate our entire wedding party. They make some of the best kilts in Scotland. The service was excellent and they made every... More
